PAID LEAVE: DCG Teacher ‘Turned Up Drunk’
A Dallas Center-Grimes teacher is on paid administrative leave following a complaint that he showed up to school drunk.
Police were called to the middle school last Friday after someone reported that the teacher smelled of alcohol.
The officer was told that the school was handling the situation internally.
The district is not releasing the teacher’s name.
Superintendent Scott Grimes says school officials are taking the personnel situation very seriously.
